Custom Van Storage Systems @ RolaCase

As we have various van storage systems to suit many different styles of tradies. There sometimes is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. At RolaCase we work with you to get the right custom shelving for your van storage system. Everyone has a different workflow of how they start and finish a job. We take this into account for you. For example; you may not like certain items such as cable drum holder being on the driver side on the vehicle, you may prefer it on the passenger side, depending on the vehicle model, this can be done. Heavier tools should be kept at a safe height for example, our heavy duty shelving can account for a lot of weight – so you can place these items at a safe height for easy access.

Types of Van Storage Systems to Consider

Metal Drawer Configurations

The metal drawer systems that RolaCase have designed and manufactured here in Australia are a fantastic way to keep your goods; safe, secure and rattle free. The best thing about our design is that they grow with your needs. Do you need to add an additional drawer on top – that’s fine – we can do that! You can find our metal drawer systems in the HVAC, Locksmith & Deluxe Package.

Cabinet Kit Configurations

If you are a ‘grab and go’ type of worker, the cabinet kits are a great addition to shelving as you can configure these with different types of RolaCases and take them with you on site as you work. These are common in our Electrical Packages, however they are across the packages.



Basic Shelving

If you are an all-rounder tradie, a basic shelving package may be your answer to your van storage system. Having the options of going down the drivers or passenger side, or both – simple shelving will keep your van neat and tidy for the work day. Many all-rounders choose this option. This can be found across the range.

Things to Consider for Your Van Storage Systems

Every RolaCase van shelving system has little storage hacks that we provide or recommend to you. See the list below;

  •         First Aid Kits – You can add these into your cabinet kit configurations into your van storage system, hang them off the shelving system. Whatever makes it easier for you  
  •         Hooks – These are ideal for hanging your tool belt on – or any hanging tools that you leave on there for your mobile work station to be more functional.
  •         Case Holders – These are great for encasing the first aid kits and can hang off end panels for ease of use.

Flooring Options with your Van Storage Systems.

With all van shelving packages we recommend a floor – why? Particularly with DIY if you are installing the shelving yourself – we predrill the holes to match the package. This will make it easier to install the shelving and the install time in half.

We have four key different types of flooring;

  1.       Rubber – 5mm big rib rubber – ideal for that extra grip.
  2.       Carpet – Marine Grade Carpet – Provides a neat finish.
  3.       Plywood – 12 mm Marine Grade Plywood – The most cost efficient form of flooring.
  4.       Phenolic Hexa – This a plywood floor with a laminate resin on top. This a more premium type of flooring. This provides heat, acid, oil and water resistant.
